“We hope that by providing an upstream peer support platform like TalkCampus, students will be more likely to start having open conversations about how they are really feeling.”
North Park University students are now able to access TalkCampus; a safe, supportive, community built from the ground up for mental health combining real-time 24/7 safeguarding and escalation, trained peer supporters and professional staff.
The team at North Park see TalkCampus being both a supplemental form of support for any students who are already engaging with other services on campus, and also as a stand-alone support for those students who are not yet engaging with the more traditional services on offer. The 24/7 element of the platform also means that students can look to utilize TalkCampus as a tool for support when formal, professional support on campus are not accessible, such as late at night or during the weekends.
“We know that for many of our students, reaching out to more traditional forms of mental health support on campus can feel challenging, due to the real stigma that still exists around mental health. We hope that by providing an upstream peer support platform like TalkCampus, students will be more likely to start having open conversations about how they are really feeling. The TalkCampus app will complement our professional on-campus support, but also introduce the 24/7 element which is a valuable addition for our students, including those that are already in touch with our services.” - North Park University
TalkCampus combines unique machine learning classifiers with professional staff to provide real time escalation and moderation at a massive scale. The platform can identify within milliseconds whether a student is at risk and use this information to provide timely, relevant support.
“It’s fantastic to see the commitment from institutions like North Park University to overcoming mental health stigma impacting their student populations. Talking about your mental health isn’t easy, but we’ve designed TalkCampus to make those first steps as familiar, intuitive and accessible as possible. We are excited to be able to add North Park University to our global catalog of forward-thinking and proactive institutions, and we look forward to supporting their students!” - Andrew Welch, SVP Partnerships
